Self-Care Tips for your Mental Heath

I have struggled for years with anxiety and depression, and one of the things I’ve learned along the journey is just how important self-care truly is. When you hear “self-care” you may have a negative view or you may not. This has become a hot topic phrase and over time has led to some negative stigmas about what it actually means.

Self-care is defined as “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health; the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress”. It does not just mean pedicures and spa days, although these are great forms of self-care for some people. When you have any sort of mental illness, day to day self-care is important in both maintaining and improving your overall well-being. For me, this means less anxiety (or responding to it more proactively) and decreased risk of a depressive episode.

AtHome: We’re Finally Moved In and Settled

If you missed it, my family and I moved out and found ourselves a home. I’ve shared some blog posts in the past, read here: AtHome: We Bought our First Home and AtHome: Packing + Minor Renovations.

It took us couple months til we’re finally moved in at our new home. Soon as the carpet was installed, our furnitures are starting to come!

I opted for a dirty white full bed on my room and a light pink shade for curtains! If you know me, pink is not in my vocubulary but I just felt like seeing colors on my room.

Outdoor Shooting Range | Fort Dix, NJ

One of the things my dad loves is range shooting. Back in the Philippines he used to be a member of a tactical shooter’s club in Tarlac City, Philippines. I honestly can’t remember what year he joined in, but I do remember seeing pictures of them at the club and also my older sister trying to shoot.

Hear My Heart Out | 02

I’ll give you a heads up, this post is long overdue. I have drafted this post around May 2020 and meant to post this, I promise – but I just was so hesitant that I couldn’t post it. But here I am trying to finish and actually posting it.

It’s been so long since I shared something relationship-wise, an update of the series I did— “Hear My Heart Out”, which was first released two years ago.

And honestly, I didn’t thought that the series will have a follow-up. But hey, this is good and something I want to remember.
